Space porn: These images are (quite literally) out of this world
Here are a few words I would use to describe toddlers:
Here are a few words Wal-Mart uses to describe toddlers, vis-à-vis their selection of pint-sized Halloween costumes:
1. “Devil Diva”
2. “Naughty Leopard”
Here are a few words I would use to describe Wal-Mart’s selection of suggestively-titled toddler costumes:
2. Come on.
3. We can all agree that this is a little weird, right?
The costumes themselves are pretty innocuous (though the “Devil Diva” is just a touch too bodice-ripping for a child who has probably just mastered not going to the bathroom in her diva shorts), but the names are weirdly suggestive. (And yes, I understand the dictionary definition of “naughty” is tame, but it seems the marketing department behind this one was trading on the more adult innuendos attached to the word.)
Regardless of how you feel about them, clothe your young daughter in these wares at your own risk, parents and caregivers! They are, apparently, made like total shit.
Here is one review of the “Devil Diva” from a deeply unsatisfied customer:
There two annoying tags on headband and tail you can’t just rip off you have to cut them off not to damage the cheap fabric.
The tail just velcros on but is so heavy it kinda of undoes the costume and leaves her back exposed .
I’m have to safety pin on more securely.
I would loved to see this come with a pitchfork.
NASA astronaut Mike Hopkins
On December 28, 2013, Expedition 38 crew member Mike Hopkins participating in the second of two space walks to replace a degraded pump module on the International Space Station. (NASA astronaut Rick Mastracchio is reflected in his helmet!)
The Soyuz TMA-10M
The Soyuz TMA-10M headed towards the International Space Station with crew members from Expedition 37 onboard.
40 years ago the Apollo 8 mission flew up to the moon, orbited it ten times and then returned to Earth. This picture was taken from that flight and shows the Earth as it seemingly rises in similar fashion to a sunrise.
Sunrise from Expedition 36
NASA Flight Engineer Karen L. Nyberg of Expedition 36 took this photo of the sun rising -- a sight they saw nearly 16 times per day due to the speed of the International Space Station's orbit around the earth.
A pair of NanoRacks CubeSats -- nanosattelite spacecrafts carrying experiments -- were launched by Expedition 38.
